Friki Noiz Monkey

I decided to make a face of crazy monkey as my animal mark logo project. To give myself some more direction I thought I could use it for my imaginary music band named FRIKI NOIZ. I'll add headphones later so the monkey needs to have a look on it's face like the music was driving it mental. I was looking for images where it has a screaming open mouth. I think the last one with the eyes closed looks the best.

I don't have a tracing paper with me, so I'll use photoshop to do the sketching. I placed the image multiple times, turned it's opacity down and I traced over it with red brush so it's more visible for me. I also experimented with brush thickness and I noticed that with thicker brush I don't trace too many details.

I traced the image few times and then my sketches, choosing the parts I liked and constructing new sketch from it.

Then I adjusted few details on the sketch and put headphones on the monkey.

I think it's ready to be vectorized.

I put guides over to refine vector work

To put it into context I placed the name of the band and added some grunge texture to make it a bit more interesting.
